Shine by LEAD and Nelson Chow


 Shine, one of Hong Kong’s high-end fashion retailers, has employed Nelson Chow (NC Design & Architecture Ltd.) and LEAD (Laboratory for Explorative Architecture & Design Ltd.) to design their flagship store at Causeway Bay.

The most unique feature of the store is its undulating ceiling, created by over 900 shimmering white cords. Woven into undulating planes, they form Moiré patterns against the dark ceiling.

The ceiling creates an illusion of movement, forming warped and vibrating patterns which become more obvious when the shopper is moves around the store.

The back of the store is covered with black leather. A mirror strategically placed on the back wall extends the length of the ceiling.
